Assertiveness

I recently came across a study on assertiveness. Its objective was to explore the issue of people being overly assertive, notably in the workplace. The study was wide-ranging and complex, but also very thorough. It was maybe 20 pages long, with densely packed text in tiny font, and went into enormous detail on the background to the topic and on the study itself. The psychologists ran a survey among 100s of people, and the analysis was long and complex, illustrated in charts and complex mathematical equations. It must have taken the three authors many months of work to complete, putting in 1,000s of hours between them and overcoming many intellectual obstacles along the way. The finished write up was precise and neat, despite its length, and must have gone through many iterations to get it into its finished, polished state. I would highly recommend the study to anyone interested in the topic, but for those who do not have the time or the energy to read it in full, I have summarised the findings below:
